    Only thing that was exposed here was pillowfist's mythical "power." The rest was expected: shitty boxing, shitty footwork, mcgasser, mcquitter, and then the excuses.

    Dude is now a concussed bum with a damaged chin. He'll never be the same.

    Absolutely agreed, that really is the only thing that was exposed. The mythical "Touch of death" his retarded groupies kept banging on about. And that includes Rogan.

    "The touch of death! He only needs to touch Floyd once with that left hand!".

    In a weird way. Both sports were exposed. An exceptionally talented mma boxer can last a few rounds against top level boxers. And boxers showed that there is a clear gulf in class between boxers and mma fighters, especially the longer the fight goes on. A different type of boxer might have seriously hurt Conor. If floyd would have cut off the ring the fight might have ended sooner.

    Still Conor was impressive and made many people eat crow. He landed powerful shots against one of the greatest boxers of all time. hung in there for 10 rounds all without having a single pro-boxing match. Both sports were exposed.

    He did zero damage to a man much smaller and older than him and he got finished. How is that exposed?

    How did Conor land more shots than most of Floyd's opponents?

    A. Mayweather didn't respect his power and so didn't fight as cautiously as usual.

    B. Mayweather walked him down and gave him a target.

    C. Conor landed exactly one semi-hard semi-clean shot the entire fight.

    D. Conor stopped throwing hard shots and started playing patty-cake just in an effort to touch Floyd.

    Like that.

    Didn't happen a single time. I challenge you to find a gif or even just find the round and minute in the fight when Floyd turn his back on Conor. Go ahead. Watch the exchanges where you think that happens. Look at the directions that Floyd and Conor are facing when the exchange begins. Look at the way they're facing once Conor is behind Floyd. See which one is facing a different direction at the end.

    (Hint: It isn't Floyd.)

    It was a joke of a fight. If you see it any other way, then Floyd conned you, too.

    he looked like literal shit, and mayweather decided to take him out when he did.
    As soon as mayweather tried, his was straight domination. Power punch after power punch
    40 year old no power mayweather looked like prime mike tyson in there.

    Conor was a complete joke, and couldnt land anything signifigant the whole fight

    I dont think he 'exposed' boxing. Look at Kevin Lee vs some bum at Money's Gym: he got REKT.....same with Diaz vs Henry, Luke and Mo vs some other bums at TMT Gym, Silva vs bum at Wild Card, etc... Rather, I think we just learned how good Conor's boxing was and reiterated the reasons why he is the only champ champ in UFC history.

    It was obvious for quite some time that modern top MMA fighters are world class strikers, first and foremost. Modern MMA is striking with a bit of grappling. Only boxing fans were making those stupid threads about striking in MMA being bad.

    Crossover is one sided in this case. Good MMA fighter can be a boxer with little to no additional training but not the other way around.

    Only thing he did was expose how much more he can make in boxing. He doesn’t belong in the ring w/ pros. Who the fuck rabbit punches the back of the head. Idiot Conor has a lot to learn
